Pittsburg Funeral Chapel - Pittsburg Obituary

Doris (Dora) Marie Becker 86, of Pittsburg, CA passed away in the early morning hours of January 21st.
Dora was the 12th and youngest of her large Italian family, The Trezzas. Dora was preceded in death by her husband Jack, her son Michael, her parents, Girolomo and Francesca, and siblings, Suzie, Antonina, Ratzi, Bessi, Betty, Sarah, Rose, Tony, Frank, Josephine, and John. Dora was a loving wife, mother, Nana, aunt and friend to all.
Dora grew up in Pittsburg and met the love of her life, Jack, when she was in high school. They married in 1956 and remained in Pittsburg with their three children. Jack and Dora loved raising their family in a community where they were active in clubs, sports, and school events. Along with being a homemaker, Dora worked at Pittsburg High School as a secretary in the Career Center.
For Dora, tradition was important. She exemplified living life to its fullest. Holidays together, summers with her family in beautiful Lake Tahoe, games (Poker nights, Yahtzee, all-nighters at the Keno machine), adventures in Europe & Alaska. Yes, the woman who hated driving on the freeway went on a fishing boat to fish for salmon and halibut in Alaska and loved it! She was an adventurer at heart!
Dora’s was the place to be for a hot meal, coffee, and heart to heart chats. There is no doubt that her spaghetti feasts will go down in history with friends and family. Dora never met a casino or card game she didn’t like and was known as the woman with the thoughtful treats at weekly bingo nights.
Dora will be remembered for her strength, generosity, thoughtfulness, sincerity (perhaps sometimes stubborn, but always with good intentions) and a deep love for her family and friends. Although she never liked being the center of attention, she wore the Trezza matriarch crown well. She will be greatly missed! Dora is survived by her son Robert, daughter Suzanne and many loving grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
Due to COVID, a private family viewing and service will be held on Tuesday, January 26th. Memorial donations may be made to The Michael A. Becker Memorial Scholarship Fund, PO Box 8636, Pittsburg, CA 94565.

Not sure what to say?

I have great memories of fun times with Jack & Dora. Loved her entire family. Especially remember boating on Lake Tahoe & our cocktail parties on Beck & Rosanne's deck & our special picnics & swimming at Sand Harbor. Wonderful memories. RIP dear friend.

Robbie, Suzanne and family - your mom was a wonderful lady and I’m blessed to have known her. My prayers to you all.

My deepest condolences and prayers go out to you and your entire family with the loss of your beautiful Mother. May she rest in peace and may you find comfort in the fond memories of her life with you.

So much to love about Auntie Dora, but, most of all, we loved her feisty spirit and loving heart. She will be missed for sure by her large number of dear loved ones, but we will also miss her because she treated us like her very own.♥♥♥♥
